Additional Notes

Historian on Givenchy, Henry Wilkinson, stated that a Paramount receipt indicates the suit cost $543.00 in May 1956 ($5,000.00 today). He is assured that the suit was a Givenchy couture piece commissioned from his Spring/Summer 1956 collection.

Audrey Hepburn was a counterpoint to the sex goddesses of the time. She represented elegant graceful style and it is little wonder that her image still represent a timeless beauty that is as contemporary today as it was in the 1950’s. This all fit perfectly into the story of a simple girl working in a book store that is propelled into the modeling world. Hepburn left her acting career while she was still on the top and continued to perform charitable acts with children around the world.

Hubert de Givenchy was a secret that Edith Head kept for many years. Hepburn developed a strong working relationship with the Paris designer, who would design much of her wardrobe in films, even though Edith Head often accepted the credit and the Oscar nominations for his work.
